New in – MAC Cosmetics

If you saw my recent post about my 25th birthday you would have probably seen this big box of MAC products I received from my boyfriend. 

I love makeup and always have and I thought I would give a little in-depth review of the products I received now I have been trying them out for a few weeks.

Mineralize Concealer

I got this in the shade NC20 which is perfect to brighten and conceal mine under eyes. It says it is a sheer coverage which to me made it sound like it wasn’t going to do much, I suffer from dark circles under my eyes so I like to hide those bad boys so I can look refreshed. It definitely covers them and I think it’s the perfect consistency for the under eye area my eyes are quite sensitive and can become quite dry so this creamy texture is perfect for that.

Prep+Prime Lip

This is a godsend I have no idea why I have never used this before?! It is basically a primer to stop your lipstick from bleeding, smudging, transferring and just keeps it lasting all day. This has quickly become my favourite product to use because as you probably already know I am a huge fan of my lipsticks!

 Burnt Spice

Dance With Me

Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour

Speaking of Lipsticks! I am a huge fan of liquid lipsticks in particular and I had never tried MAC’s before but now, I have two of these on in the shade Burnt Spice which is a gorgeous dirty, pinky nude if that makes sense? it’s a great daily shade that goes with every look and outfit and the other shade I got was the shade Dance With Me which is the most beautiful deep cranberry type of red which is one of my favourite kinds. It is so flattering on all different skin tones and hair colours and it will be so perfect for autumn/winter time as the new daily lip look because I love to wear red lipstick in winter well, I used to wear it daily when I was a brunette but since being blonde I struggle with finding one that suits me and the deeper reds with blonde hair is just a look!
The actual applicators are so nice to use they are soft and fluffy and distribute an even coat on to the lips and the tip of the applicator isn’t flimsy at all so you don’t need a lip liner to line your lips if you don’t want too because the applicator lines them for you.

Upward Lash Mascara 

This is a game changer! I kind of don’t get too excited with mascara because it seems to me that if you don’t have gorgeous fluttery eyelashes (or extensions) then it really isn’t going to do too much. My eyelashes are pretty short and straight and I have considered having LVL lashes. I did recently have lash extensions which I loved and will probably go back to have done and while they were super fluttery this mascara made my bottom lashes so pretty I got super excited to see what they did to my upper lashes. Since my lash extensions have been off I have loved using this, the brush is super small and grabs every single lash which makes my lashes pop and look really pretty and fluttery which never happens to my lashes. 

I did get a few other bits which I haven’t tried just yet so when I do I will definitely update you on that!

I have been using the mascara, concealer prep+prime lip and the Burnt Spice Liquid lip all the time lately. What do you think of the shades?
